It’s another beautiful Saturday here in Upstate, and since I had a free morning, a trip to the Farmers Market was definitely on the agenda!
Before heading out, I woke up nice and early to get my workout all finished for the day. I did the 40 minute Rock Hard Total Body Workout from Exercise on Demand, and it totally rocked my booty! I’m finding that I really like this workout, and it’s been a good switch from my usual BodyPump for a little while. If you have access to Exercise on Demand, and you’re up for a challenge, I’d definitely recommend you try this workout:
“This strength training workout from Body By Jake will get your entire body moving. Learn challenging muscle building moves that will take your workout to the next level while you watch your body change without expensive weight training equipment. Grab a pair of dumbbells and get ready to seriously sweat it out with this full body workout.”
After showering and getting ready, I grabbed a quick breakfast on the run, since I only had a few minutes before meeting up with Kate.
I had an ugly (but delicious) baby banana & two Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies. My supply of these is dwindling…I’m getting sad.
(Please ignore the ghetto nail polish sample on my thumb…I was testing out some colors yesterday.)
I realize this probably wasn’t the best “breakfast” to eat after an intense workout, but I was also taking into account the fact that I would be snacking on various samples while at the market too.
The market was definitely hoppin’ today! So many goodies to choose from. I would seriously have no problem dropping $50+ if I had that much cash on me.
So ever since the beginning of the Farmers Market season, Kate and I have been eyeballing this crazy concoction called a “pizza scone” at one of the vendors. We’ve passed it up every time, but today Kate bit the bullet and decided to try it out. After we both had a bite, we decided that it was definitely just like pizza! It almost tasted like dough + sauce, with the cheese on the top. Crazy, but totally delish!
As I walked in door after getting home, I was greeted by this guy who was definitely somewhere where he knows he does not belong!
“Oh crap, I’m busted…”
We had a talk and straightened things out. He apologized.
Alright, so here’s my goods from today:
Blizzard Butter for Mom to try!
And of course, an iced coffee with skim milk to top off my morning trip.
I also picked up some fresh corn on the cob, romaine lettuce, some chives, and a cucumber. All of this cost
me Jay $20.00, which is probably more than I’d pay at the grocery store, but I really don’t mind. I love buying things locally when I can!
Time to go make some lunch and head out for a little poolside action. Hope you’re all enjoying your Saturday!
Question for the Day:
When visiting a Farmers Market (or grocery store) do you go with a list or a budget or do you just buy whatever looks good?
